    One of the top destinations in DC. Plan on spending the day, if you get tired, here are numerous small theaters showing films where you can rest your weary feet.

    The Newseum takes about four or five hours to properly experience it entirely. It is definitely worth the time and ticket price for those interested in anything dealing with journalism.

    Unlike most museums, you have to pay to get in here. Still, admission is worth the cost once you see the multiple stories of amazing exhibits.

    Will definitely return. Favorites were the PA Ave view, the 9/11 display, the Berlin Wall display and the presidential dogs!

    The collection of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs is amazing, as are historical artifacts like pieces from the Berlin Wall.

    Inspiring and very worth the 21 dollars to get in. Look for special exhibitions on photography, look at the Berlim wall and see the sad little antenna from WTC. Read about free speech!
  • Brook E.
    So, so good. Really enjoyed the news history gallery and the Pulitzer Prize photo gallery. Left wishing I had more time there.

    Try the news reporting booths on the second floor. Make sure to look at the terrace on the sixth floor for a great view

    Very interesting displays of original pieces on major historic events. A bit slanted on opinion.

    The view from the 6th floor is amazing. Make sure you watch the 9-11 movie next to the antenna - it is very moving.

    This place is perfect for news junkies. Front pages from newspapers across the country are displayed outside. If you're pressed for time, hit the Pulitzer photo gallery and the 9/11 memorial exhibit.

    The Pulitzer Prize Winners exhibit on photography is fantastic. Every photo that's won since 1942 is featured with descriptions of many of them.

    My favorite part is the enormous hall with pullout shelves of historic front pages, from colonial america up until a couple months ago.

    Food Section: Mac/cheese rich & creamy. Generous portions--best food value I've had in DC. Vegetarians, get roasted veggies & the mac/cheese. Be hungry!

    No more Be A TV Reporter. For your groups and anyone else paying the hefty admission, staff could at least do a quick briefing to help visitors get the most out of their experience.

    Nikon Pictures of the Year exhibit is the best- bottom floor. And the foam microphone in the gift shop is lots of fun!

    Even only reading best daily headlines from newspapers in the showcases on the building will leave you entertained 😁

    Yes, it is a paid museum, but totally worth the ticket--$20 gets you in for two days, so take your time!

    A real feast for the eyes: textures, attention to detail, installations, environmental graphics, photography... Visual artists would be delighted :-)

    Incredible museum focused on First Amendment rights as played out through the media since the beginning of American history.

    Your ticket is good for 2 days- which is good, because you'll need that much time to get through everything. New favorite DC attraction.

    Soviet spies once passed along microfilm inside hollowed-out coins. Somehow, one found its way into the pocket change of a newspaper delivery person and is on display here. Read more

    The best museum in D.C. and your ticket is good for two days -- and it's worth the return trip. I'd list my favorite exhibits, but it would be every one.

    Be prepared to be affected by the 9/11 exhibit- totally worth the entrance fee alone. Trust me, a must see!

    Read the wall tiles in restrooms - and laugh. .. In irony for more than obvious reason.

    A little pricey considering all of the free museums. Follow the "recommended" path because the layout is weird.
